18_image_smallYou put so much thought into your child’s nursery. The perfect crib, the right shade of paint for the walls, beautiful crib bedding…. Shouldn’t you also select some cool artwork too? A is for Art makes original adorable prints on canvas, as well as murals, rugs and even custom artwork for your child’s nursery. 

I liked A is for Art’s prints because they were whimsical and creative. The company believes that "art for children can be sophisticated, fun and original" and the "sophisticated and silly sit side-by-side with the endearing and extraordinary." Children will definitely not outgrow this art. It will take them from infant hood to the preteen years.

We were sent the darling Ballerina Pigs($130) by Lisa Williams on a 8" x 39" canvas. It fit in perfectly withmy husband’s and my quirky sense of humor. We also loved the rest ofthe series. Check out Pigs Swinging on Chandeliers, and Pigs in Clouds (pictured above). You can even personalize one of Lisa Williams’ Polka Dogs prints with your child’s name and favorite color.

Check out Jonathan Blum’s Ostrich Family Picnic ($100- pictured to the left), Still Life with Dogs ($130), and King and Queen (at the Brooklyn Bridge) ($130). The prints were funny and the colors so vibrant. You could go for the more serious (and just as beautiful), check out the endangered animals collection by Stacey Wyman Posnett.   

How do these prints look so good? A is for Art uses Giclée prints on canvas. The quality of the print was great. According to the company,

Giclée printmaking technology achieves remarkable visual resolution and makes it look identical to the original painting. Each piece is crafted one at a time and the canvas is hand-stretched. It comes ready to hang.

The company is run by mom Claudia Kandel. This former Kraftexecutive was pregnant and decorating her nursery when she couldn’tfind art to match her style — An idea was born. Kandel officiallylaunched her company in January of 2007.  Besides all the fantasticartwork you order at A is for Art, the company will work with you to create custom pieces (even murals) for your child’s nursery.
